BALLOONISTS, THE:The History of the First Aeronauts BALLOONISTS, THE:The History of the First Aeronauts
Ref G012

In 1783 the Montgolfier brothers made history with the first hot-air balloon flight. Their exploits, and those of Rozier, Lunardi, Blanchard and other pioneering aeronauts, attracted the attention and admiration of the masses like nothing before. The aeronauts became heroes of their time. This new edition of L T C Rolts's classic book, with a foreword by famous modern-day aeronaut Don Cameron, is a complete history of balloons and the intrepid men and women who flew in them, from the first flights until 1903, when the Wright brothers heavier than air flight at Kittyhawk changed the history of aviation forever.

Sprinkled with lively extracts from journals and drawing on contemporary accounts, 'The Balloonists' follows the exploits of the early pioneers: the first Channel crossing by air, the first high altitude ascents and determined efforts to cross the Atlantic from America. It ranges from showman aeronauts such as husband and wife couple the Garnerians, to Napoleon's use of the first Corp of Aerostiers in the Egyptian campaign of 1798 - 1801, and from man's first powered flight - taken by Henri Giffard in a steam balloon - to the use of balloons for early scientific and meteorological research.

Lightly and entertainingly written 'The Balloonists' sheds light on a fascinating period of aeronautical history.

DISCOVERING LONDON'S GUILDS AND LIVERIES DISCOVERING LONDON'S GUILDS AND LIVERIES
Ref D8

The City of London has one of the strongest unbroken traditions of livery companies in the world. Over one hundred companies, some six centuries old, maintain strong, colourful, beneficial, traditional and independent lives, and many of them have beautiful halls. This book traces the history of the guilds and liveries in various countries and shows their influence on the government of the city, on which the Westminster model is based, on the actual trades, on royalty and on the history of Britain and other lands. The author compares the guilds of Britain with those of Europe and describes each of the city guilds, their halls, history, traditions, work and influence.

Ref G115

In this easy-to-follow and excellently researched book, Stan Yorke explains the background, machines and processes that helped to create our industrial world, using drawings and diagrams by his son, Trevor. Four major industrial areas are examined: the water wheel as a source of power in mills and foundries; the steam engine which made power available to a variety of manufacturing industries; the mechanisation of textile production making cloth for all reality; and iron, which revolutionised bridge construction and made the railways possible.

OLD STATIONARY ENGINES OLD STATIONARY ENGINES
Ref SA49

This book describes the evolution of the first practical stationary engines and illustrates some of the many designs, with notes on their important features and information on the better-known manufacturers. There are many different forms of stationary engine and emphasis has been placed on engines that the reader is most likely to come across. There are small-power engines, large engines, common and rare engines - something to appeal to everyone.

Although there are many good books describing the development and progress of early gas, oil and diesel stationary engines, most were written for the technical man and consequently are difficult for the uninitiated to understand. But this book is designed for the newcomer who wishes to learn more about old stationary engines and the reasons why people collect them. It will also be of interest to the longer-term enthusiast because of the large collection of captioned photographs, which will be useful for reference.

VICTORIAN ENGINEERING VICTORIAN ENGINEERING
Ref G025

Behind the familiar concept of Victorian Britain as the workshop of the world lies a complex story of invention, achievement and unfailing optimism. L T C Rolt, author of distinguished biographies of Brunel, the Stephensons and Telford, has produced a lively and wide ranging survey of the revolutionary engineering feats in Victoria's reign.

It is a survey which combines the fascination of individual achievement - Stephenson's Britannia Bridge over the Menai Straits; Paxton's design for the Crystal Palace; the Severn Tunnel; the London sewage system - with the crucial questions of how industrialisation takes place and how it changes its environment.

Finally, Rolt tackles the problem of why, after the years of success, the Victorians apparently suffered a loss of nerve; financial support became more hesitant and many of the innovations of British engineering found their best expression in other countries.

The Victorians, he argues, failed to come to terms with the consequences of industrialisation - a failure we have perpetuated.

Canal poems by Rod Dungate. Photographs by Carl Hopley & Agui da Palma

Rod Dungate is a published, performed and broadcast, award-winning poet and playwright. He's lived in Birmingham since 1984 - ' to move to Birmingham is one of the few decisions in my life I got right'

He has a long-standing interest in the UK canals and after hiring boats eventually bought a part share in one, launched in 2003 - Centurion. ' I own 1/12 of a narrowboat and 11 kind people lend me their parts when I take it out.' This group of poems were all written since 2003.

As well as writing Rod runs many workshops for poetry and drama writing, and when not writing, works as an education specialist. He is a regular tutor or for undergraduate actors at Birmingham School of Acting and for adults at Birmingham University, Centre for Lifelong Learning in creative writing.

Details and examples of Rob's work can be found on www.RodDungate.com
